Plastic Bag


Myanmar, a young boy haunted by the seal of sin, pursues an impossible love and loses himself.   

'When I was 19, I tried to kill myself for love. But I didn't succeed. I was too afraid to die, afraid to live…When it is dark in our lives, we tend to flee to even darker places. We often imagine that our darkness will disappear there. I am obsessed with this thought. Where there is light you can see things, with darkness you can tell things. In the darkness everything is more raw, more naked. Our fears as well as our desires. It seems to me that we get a little closer to the truth. Dark is the story of my country, drowned after a short break in the cruellest of dictatorships, my country victim of a tight closure to the rest of the world, surrounded by a multitude of wars, especially on all its borders.' - Than Lwin Oo
